An advanced two-day training course offered by Shine.

The complexity of risk and safety shapes work with victims and offenders of domestic violence in multiple settings.

This training addresses risk, culture, assumptions, and institutional impacts to help practitioners to partner more effectively with others to work towards victim safety and offender accountability. Victim/survivors need support for autonomy; many offenders can be engaged in a change process and be held accountable. Both need practical resources. Dismantling the misconceptions we have about victims' and offenders' day-to-day lives enables more effective work across disciplines to prevent domestic violence.
